The interface module forms the link between process level and parent bus system. All control signals are transmitted through the internal backplane bus to the electronics module (EM). In the case of the interface module the bus interface and power module (PM) are integrated in a single casing. Both the bus interface and the electronics of the connected peripheral modules are supplied with power via the integrated power module. Slave modules are available for CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus-DP, EtherCAT, EthernetI/P, Modbus/TCP and Profinet-IO, and up to 64 I/O modules can be operated on the interface module. Features include DIP switches for address setting for the PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen with transparent cover, MAC address on the front in plain text, electrical isolation between fieldbus and input/output field, and integrated 24 VDC power module to power the electronic and peripheral modules.
